Jump to: HotelsPubsParkingDirectionsFan’s comments

elland road leedsElland Road, home to Leeds United is an all-seater stadium, with a capacity of 40,204.

The Revie Stand, named after the club’s most successful manager and former player, occupies the North end of the ground. Formerly a standing terrace, it had 7,000 seats installed prior to its re-opening for the 1995-96 season. The East Stand runs the length of the east side of the pitch and is the most recent stand in the stadium. The two-tiered structure was opened during the 1993-94 season with a build cost of £5.5 million.

The South Stand is situated behind the goal at the south end of the ground. It was built in 1974 at a cost of £500,000 to replace the Scratching Shed, which had been there since the 1920s. It comprises two small tiers intersected with a row of 32 executive boxes and an executive restaurant. The South-East Corner seats 1,710 fans and is usually used to house the away fans. The John Charles Stand runs the length of the west side of the pitch and houses the players’ tunnel and Directors’ box, along with corporate hospitality facilities.
